baby no. 2 {37 weeks}

how far along? 37 weeks
how are you measuring? At our last appointment everything was measuring right on track except for his head was a little big!! He is about 6lbs 7oz according to the sonogram.  My cervix is still long and closed.  
size of baby? size of a bunch of swiss chard
heartbeat? 144bpm (at our 36 week appointment) 
total weight gain/loss? 35lbs
maternity clothes? Yep!
stretch marks? Oh yes, they are showing up all over my bump! Eeek!!
sleep? Blah, pretty awful.  Between my sciatic nerve pain at night, waking up 4-5 times times at night, having a hard time falling back asleep after waking up, and round ligament pains, I wake up pretty tired in the mornings.  God way of preparing me for all the interrupted sleep I'm going to be having in a few weeks when Nash is here.  Atleast when he is here I'll have a cute baby to stare at and my sciatic nerve pain will hopefully be gone. 
best moment this week? We had what will probably be our last date night for a while on Friday Night.  We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Texas together then did a little shopping for a few things we still needed for baby boy. 
movement? Yes, and my poor right side feels bruised sometimes because he's been in the same position for over a month now.  He never kicks on the left side.  It's always on the right side and he kicks so hard.  
food cravings? My love for Chai Tea Lattes has not gone away and of course my sweet tooth hasn't gone away either.  
gender predictions? BOY!!!! Nash Matthew Link
what i miss? Sleep.
what i'm looking forward to? I'm looking forward to spending time with my boys over the next two weeks before he is here.  Of course I can't wait until Nash is here too!!
how are you feeling? If you ask me during the day, my answer will most likely be pretty good.  If you ask me after 4pm it will be mostly complaints.  I just get so tired, my body starts to ache, the Braxton Hicks contractions start to pick up and I'm just overall uncomfortable.  
comparisons to last pregnancy? Totally random but I get a Charlie Horse every single morning at about 6:45 right before I wake up at 7am.  I've had so many more aches and pains this pregnancy.  

Here I am 37 weeks with Pearson and 37 weeks with Nash

Hello! I've been following your blog for a couple years now! Excited to see your sweet little one to come! And LOVE his name : ) I have 2 different friends who over the last couple years also had the sciatic nerve pain with their pregnancies unfortunately both of them continued to have it for months after the baby was born, one saying it was even worse! Will pray yours will go away! Best wishes for you and your family in these next few weeks!!! : )

I always love when they give sonogram weight predictions! I like to see how accurate they are! Is that weird? What did you think of Baylor frisco?
